Tomorrow will be one heck of a day for social media as people live blog, Twitter and video the inauguration ceremony of US President-elect Barack Obama live from Washington. And any self-respecting startup will be trying to get their share of the “Obamania”.
Among those will be mobile video streaming pioneer Qik which has partnered with the BBC. They are asking anyone going to Washington to join their special inauguration channel. Videos which appear there may be used on BBC television or BBC News Online.
